Introduce notation "ref^{type}".
Existing "tagname^0" notation means "dereference tag zero or more times until you cannot dereference it anymore, and make sure it is a commit -- otherwise barf". But tags do not necessarily reference commit objects. This commit introduces a bit more generalized notation, "ref^{type}". Existing "ref^0" is a shorthand for "ref^{commit}". If the type is empty, it just dereferences tags until it hits a non-tag object. With this, "git-rev-parse --verify 'junio-gpg-pub^{}'" shows the blob object name -- there is no need to manually read the tag object and find out the object name anymore. "git-rev-parse --verify 'HEAD^{tree}'" can be used to find out the tree object name of the HEAD commit. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
